I have revamped my blog site a bit with a fresher looking theme.  It is set up with more of a newsletter type setup so I’m asking that people please “sign up for the Funny Side. (its right next to this post).

I sent out a mailing list recently but some people never received the notification, so you’ll need to “sign up.”     Please feel free to forward it to anyone you think might be interested in my blog.

I am going on an African Safari in ten days with my mother-in-law Betty and some of her friends.  I really want to bring everyone along on the adventure as its happening.  I’m excited to write, take photos, shoot videos and share it all with everyone.

Lets go to Africa!
